The Wormwood File E-Mail from Hell
by Jim Forest
Old demons never die... they just go on-line! The Screwtape letters for a new generation. "The Wormwood File is a heavenly work. . . Read now, laugh now, but also repent now!"--William Griffin, author C.S. Lewis: Spirituality for Mere Christians.
My dearest Greasebeek, . . .
Do your job well and you'll see that any hobby, hobbyhorse, ideology or cause can be made into a whirlpool... There are more vegetarians than cannibals in hell.
By means of a series of intercepted e-mail from a senior demon (Wormwood) to his junior protégé, this deceptively entertaining book offers wise reflections on Christian life. Through Wormwood's counsel on how to handle a wavering client, we see how many ways there are to deceive the wayward believer. As Wormwood observes, "The battleground is the human mind. Reshape what he thinks and the deeds you intend for him will follow. There are ideas with wider jaws and sharper teeth than any dragon."
